The show was great.
I was able to get a few great Bob mugs and say hello to almost all the wonderful artists.
Thank you to Eric and the Tonga Hut staff for putting this show on and helping me to expand my Tiki Bob collection.
And, congrats to Joe Banks who took home the ribbon for best in show. Your piece was great and a well deserved win.
Thanks again to all.

Thanks Tobunga and the whole Tonga Hut crew for an awesome event. It was great getting to see everybody and meeting new people like Chippy. Thanks everybody who bought GROG' crap. It was much appreciated, especially since GROG not working right now. The new Tiki Magazine and More looks great. Congrats Amy and the rest on doing a swell job putting the magazine together. I'll try and keep the momentum going and do more ceramics, so keep your eyes out for more GROG' Crap.

Thanks to Amy and all the Tonga Hut crew, and to all the fantastic tiki artists, sculptors, carvers, musicians and drinkers. It was great meeting and talking to you. A fun day for all, including Ella-Roux, who is still thanking me!

Great Bob show all around. Bob presents an interesting canvas to work from and I thought there were a ton of great interpretations on display. Add in the Tiki Magazine (& more) release, the debut of The New Caledonians, and a fine bunch of friends new and old and you had a fun afternoon and evening. Thanks all around, including Eric for putting the art show and vending together and the entire Tonga Hut crew for putting on another packed Sunday.
if it's not a little complicated, it's probably not worth it.

Here are some photos of the work in the art show... there were some really great pieces in a variety of media!
This was one of my favorites, Jonathan Morrill's piece, which referenced the "Lingerie Lunches" that took place at the original Tiki Bob's in San Francisco!
